Just remember…we might replace the RINO candidates. (Or we might not. The record is mixed even though there is more MAGA than there used to be.) But that will make no difference in the long run if the party officials, basically the Rhonna McDaniels (or however that’s spelled–I suspect it’s RINO), don’t get replaced.
State party chairs, vice chairs, secretaries and so on, and the same at county levels, have huge influence on who ultimately gets nominated, and if these party wheelhorses are RINOs, they will work tirelessly to put their own pukey people on the ballot. In fact I’d not be surprised if some of our “MAGA” candidates are in fact, RINO plants, encouraged to run by the RINO party leadership when they realized that Lyn Cheney (and her ilk) were hopelessly compromised as effective candidates. The best way for them to deal with the opposition, of course, is to run it themselves.
Running good candidates is only HALF of the battle!
SPECIAL SECTION: Message For Our “Friends” In The Middle Kingdom
I normally save this for near the end, but…basically…up your shit-kicking barbarian asses. Yes, barbarian! It took a bunch of sailors in Western Asia to invent a real alphabet instead of badly drawn cartoons to write with. So much for your “civilization.”
Yeah, the WORLD noticed you had to borrow the Latin alphabet to make Pinyin. Like with every other idea you had to steal from us “Foreign Devils” since you rammed your heads up your asses five centuries ago, you sure managed to bastardize it badly in the process.
Have you stopped eating bats yet? Are you shit-kickers still sleeping with farm animals?
Or maybe even just had the slightest inkling of treating lives as something you don’t just casually dispose of?

And here’s my response to barbarian “asshoes” like you:
OK, with that rant out of my system…
Biden Gives Us Too Much Credit
…we can move on to the next one.
Apparently Biden (or his puppeteer) has decided we’re to blame for all of the fail in the United States today.
Sorry to disappoint you Joe (or whoever), but you managed to do that all on your own; not only that, you wouldn’t let us NOT give you the chance because you insisted on cheating your way into power.
Yep, you-all are incompetent, and so proud of it you expect our applause for your sincerity. Fuck that!!
It wouldn’t be so bad, but you insist that everyone else have to share in your misery. Nope, can’t have anyone get out from under it. Somehow your grand vision only works if every single other person on earth is forced to go along. So much as ONE PERSON not going along is enough to make it all fail, apparently.
In engineering school we’re taught that a design that has seven to eight billion single points of failure…sucks.
Actually, we weren’t taught that. Because it would never have occurred to the professors to use such a ridiculous example.
Justice Must Be Done.
The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system.

So here it is, Friday, 3PM MT after markets closed and we see:
Things aren’t moving around all that much lately.
Time for a wrenching change of subject…because JWST took a picture of a globular cluster.
I was pretty much done with orbits anyhow.
A globular cluster is a grouping of stars, tens of thousands or even millions of them, forming an approximate sphere. The stars are very closely packed in the center and as you move away from the center the density decreases markedly.
This is Messier 2, a globular cluster that (as seen from Earth) is in the constellation Aquarius. (Note this is not the JWST’s image–it’s from Hubble.)
Charles Messier in the 1700s was interested in comets. In telescopes, before they get close to the sun and (possibly) become bright enough for people to see with the naked eye, they simply look like fuzzy blobs. Also, since they orbit the Sun, they move against the background stars (which are at least ten thousand times further away). So Messier would record a fuzzy blob in a certain location then check that location again a few days later. If the blob had moved, he likely had a comet. Otherwise, it was a permanent feature of the nighttime sky.
There were enough permanent blobs that Messier made a list of them, so when he stumbled across that blob again, he’d know he could ignore it. This is now the Messier catalog of about 110 objects. Many of the most famous nebulae in the night sky are Messier objects; many nearby galaxies are too. (Andromeda, for instance, is M-31, and the 800 bazillion ton gorilla of the Virgo cluster, M87 (the one with the really, really big black hole in its center), well, is a Messier object.
Many of Messier’s blobs were fuzzy spheres in his telescope (which was fairly primitive); as optics got better it became apparent they were clusters of tens of thousands or even millions of stars.
It also became apparent that there were quite a number of these in our galaxy…but they do not lie in the plane of the galaxy like the spiral arms do; they are in a swarm in what’s called the galactic halo, a spherical region centered on the bulge at the center of our galaxy. So if you imagine the Milky Way galaxy as, say a CD, some of the clusters are above it, and some below, most are just a few inches from the center of the cd. Other galaxies have them too, and they’re readily visible in powerful telescopes.
Another quirky feature about globular clusters is that the stars in them tend to be very old, over ten billion years old. For a while, astronomers would measure the age of a globular cluster, and come up with a number greater than the cosmologists’ number for the age of the universe. Of course this was absurd…how can an object in the universe be older than the universe. Over a number of decades as measurements were refined the discrepancy went away, but nevertheless, globular clusters are old.
Probably the most famous globular cluster (often just called “globulars”) is Omega Centauri. It’s so bright it was mistaken for a star by the ancients. It does not have a Messier number as it’s not readily visible from northern Europe where Messier worked–but folks living in Australia get to enjoy it. Another famous one is the Hercules cluster, M 13. It’s an easy one to find even with binoculars since it lies on a line between two stars in the Hercules “keystone” pattern (four stars that look like they outline a keystone).
JWST took the following picture of M 92, which is also in Hercules. It’s one of the brighter and more spectacular ones but is overshadowed by M 13. It’s particularly interesting because it’s one of the oldest globular clusters, somewhere between twelve and 13 billion years old. (The universe itself is presently believed to be 13.787 billion years old, give or take 0.02 billion years.) Scientists hope to learn something new about the universe as it was back then.
(We already know from spectrographic analysis the stars shown have almost no “metals” (astrophysicist terminology for elements other than hydrogen and helium) in them…they formed before the elements themselves were formed in more massive stars.)
The first thing you’ll notice is that the center of the cluster is missing. This was deliberate. The astronomers using JWST were interested in the outlying stars and the millions of stars clumped together in the center would have washed them out. They were able to use a gap that exists between two of the NIRCam long wavelength detectors. Talk about making lemonade from lemons!
M92 is about 27,600 light years away. It’s 16,000 light years outside of the plane of the Milky Way and 33,000 light years away from the galactic center. (We are about 27,000 light years from the center.)
This is of course a false-color image, because it’s JWST. None of what you see in this picture is actually visible to the human eye. Rather, this image was taken at four infrared wavelengths we can’t see, then the four each given their own color of visible light and the group combined together into one image. From the NASA website: “This image is composite of four exposures using four different filters: F090W (0.9 microns) is shown in blue; F150W (1.5 microns) in cyan; F277W (2.77 microns) in yellow; and F444W (4.44 microns) in red.” For reference, red light is about 0.7 microns and blue light is 0.4 microns. All of the things seen in the picture are therefore “redder than red.”

China is in the White House
Since Wednesday, January 20 at Noon EST, the bought-and-paid for His Fraudulency Joseph Biden has been in the White House. It’s as good as having China in the Oval Office.
Joe Biden is Asshoe
China is in the White House, because Joe Biden is in the White House, and Joe Biden is identically equal to China. China is Asshoe. Therefore, Joe Biden is Asshoe.
But of course the much more important thing to realize:

Another article full of fascinating distances (27,600 light years away!) and stars and telescopic abilities to ponder.
GOD’s creation is infinite, intricate, in size, detail, variation – both micro and macro – the end and limits of the universe has never been discovered or explored.
A retired college professor once told our Bible study group: “Matter is simply organized energy.”
Think about that….
GOD orders that energy into atoms, molecules, elements and objects, living beings, all creation.
GOD and only GOD designs, wills and sustains that order.
We must remain in contact with GOD who IS Truth, Love and Life, obey and rely upon GOD to maintain our inner/spiritual order – equilibrium – morality – veracity – sustenance….everything. HE is our All in All.
GOD is in control – sovereign.
GOD’s sovereignty is complete, His throne, His power and omnipotence is completely secure and peaceful, without threat or danger of ever being overthrown and His commandments, judgments, laws will never be repealed or altered.
GOD is Love, Truth, Life, Joy, Mercy, Hope….the ultimate good…. everything we really want and need….honesty and humility about our own limits and failures will lead us to seek GOD’s wisdom and worship of the Holy True GOD.
A video about the greatness of GOD.
Nice that we are thinking in these terms. Meanwhile some have been doing this for quite some time now, but they don’t get much credit for it as they did little to follow up on it in a practical sense and kept it all theoretical and piled it with myth. But there seems to be a reason for that as you’ll see if you follow this to the end.
Meanwhile has to say he rushed through his little story there. He’s told it better before with all the little stuff that makes stories better.
That was fun!
I learned something today.
I thought I was messy, but someone was Messier…..
Unrelated, but this brought you to mind. Someone posted a meme that said something about believing that you are god. Here was a response:
Ummm, yeah, no thanks… If I was indeed God, I wouldn’t be struggling right now with “Calculate squirrel-adjusted, moon-phase depreciation of your shoelace assets using telepathic potato coefficients on line 42” on my income taxes!
Seems about right…
It’s a little different being a god of insanity and chaos…..income taxes are almost a sacrament…..

I tried to put you about where they start to figure out what the problem is….but, frankly, it takes the characters a long while to catch on. At the beginning, they can’t even see the baddies — being that they’re dark matter and only interact with regular matter through gravity.

Rep. Thomas Massie with the facts in a hearing with Pete Buttigieg about electric vehicles, how much electricity they use, the infrastructure’s inability to meet the goals of the JB fraudministration (in other words, how ridiculous the whole thing is).
An electric vehicle charging at home uses as much electricity as 50 refrigerators. Where is that electricity going to come from?
Pete has no answers beyond pie in the sky we formed a joint committee to talk about it. Clueless.
That boy is an evil twerp.
Alfred E. Neuman, OTOH, is actually funny
“That boy is an evil twerp.”
Yep, he let his inner fascist show when he confronted the journalist hounding him about his incompetence and took a picture of her, intimating that she was now on the brown-shirt’s ‘enemies list’.
He’s a nasty one. Rainbow Nazi of the worst kind.
Track his personal history – a clown creation. You will probably have to go back into archives as the usual suspects have cleaned the search history.
BiteMe’s Administration is a clown creation.
Absolutely. He was a “Rhodes Collar”!
“Pete has no answers beyond pie in the sky we formed a joint committee to talk about it.”
Lucky for him he doesn’t need any answers.
Power beats answers like a rented mule.
“Rep. Thomas Massie with the facts…”
Facts don’t matter.
Not even a little.
Massie could have all the facts on planet earth, and it wouldn’t change a single thing.
The only thing that matters is power.
You either have it, or find a way to get it, or you lose.
That is all.
True, whether you’re GANDHI or PATTON.
We have been doing a lot of confrontation, but we need to do more power-building.
The hell with that! The power bill would kill me.
I was able to considerably reduce my power bill by shutting off a computer I almost never use, trading in the other one (the one I am on right now) for an Intel NUC, and no longer using my B&W 808s with 300 watts per channel on standby. The last was forced on me actually, my pre-amp relies on HDMI processors which keep crapping out and needing a reset. I got tired of reconfiguring the whole system every month or so after doing a hard reset and Just stopped using it. (I used to like Denon stereo equipment, now I will never buy it again as this is the second unit I have had with that problem.)
I could lower it still further if I didn’t have Darwin requiring continuous 100+ watts either for his lamp or heat.
My fridge is nothing special (not super efficient or anything like that); it’s probably my biggest energy hog now.
Do you use a dryer? Because THAT is the energy suck in a house.
I reduced my power bill by $50 a month, just by hang-drying all my laundry.
Yes, it’s a pain in the ass, especially in winter. But I have a four-poster bed with a canopy frame, which is now where I hang wet clothes!
I do use a dryer…but it’s gas. So it just needs a 120V line to turn the drum.
It sucks energy but not electrical, and even if you were to consider both electrical and gas it’s more efficient because you’re simply burning something and using ALL of the heat (since heat is the point) instead of losing so much of it to thermodynamic waste as happens at an electrical generating plant.
Yes, gas dryers are much better.
Using electricity for heat is horrifically inefficient and expensive.
I know. I have a wood stove. Much cheaper.
Same…though I generally just let the furnace run.
There’s a take away. $50 monthly, to run a dryer.
Here, home of six full sized people, hmmm.
Should have bought a gas dryer, eight plus years ago, when I bought the current electric dryer.
A gas dryer can be expensive as heck to set up, if you have to have a gas line run to your laundry room. The nature of gas piping is such that you practically need to disassemble the entire set of lines inside your walls to make a change, unless someone put in a tee and plugged one branch of it.
Oh yea. Learned that, when I wanted a gas line put in for an emergency generator.
Thankfully, present laundry room, came with a gas line/valve.
Years ago, I converted a nat gas dryer to run on propane. I hooked it to the setup from a backyard grill. Had to turn the valve on the propane tank to start it but the piezo lit it up just fine. Used it for years.
Mine does run on propane because the whole house does. A matter of switching out nozzles.
Which, BTW, is a good argument for using tees everywhere you’d use elbows on your gas line and plugging the other side if you’re building a house from scratch.
I’m also a fan of subpanels for electrical.
Indeed. I did do my own gas lines (and it was a nasty learning experience). I planned on a gas dryer in the first place. Honestly the only tee I put in was where I might want to run a line to a gas generator someday.
For those who have been so fortunate as to avoid the subject entirely, gas lines are crazy because the service pressure is so low. If you have a tee where one side goes to your 50K BTU cooktop and the other goes to your 50K BTU furnace and it’s underbuilt, you can get into a situation where every time your furnace goes on your cooktop goes out.
We had a fireplace log-lighter, a gourmet cooktop, a water heater, and a furnace, and had to upgrade the piping all the way back to the meter.
Yes that is why I have electric dryer. I like gas dryer seems more efficient. I prefer hanging wash out if I ever get a wash line 🙄
In June I am going to be alone for a week guess what 😂
I have several projects to do. 😎
Yes. Six people would be a LOT more. We are only TWO!
I have electric dryer my first always had gas before.
Massie had an opportunity to go after BUTT-GIG and he didn’t.
When Butt-Gig does his “evasive admissions” that “yes, we have to do something about that”, it’s time to PUSH HIM ONTO THAT GROUND and force him to explore the kind of social change and adaptation he’s talking about.
He’s a smarmy little asshole who knows how to AVOID talking about the horrible consequences of his policies, and how they are worse than the “magical threat” of “climate change” from which he says we must run.
James Madison on democracies and republics:
“Pure democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.” – James Madison, Federalist 10, 1787
“We may define a republic to be … a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior.” – James Madison, Federalist 39, 1788
“for a limited period” does NOT mean holding office for one’s entire FEINSTEIN.
TRANIFESTO to be released…..
“It’s not clear how much of the document, if any, will be redacted when it is released.”
When the inevitable redactions are put in the documents, treat it like MAD LIBS. Fill in the blanks in a way that portrays all trannies in the worst possible light, and then send it everywhere.
Make the mockery so brutal that the little Hitlers and control freaks are compelled to unredact it, just to prove it isn’t as bad as what is circulating all over the Interwebs.
This is the way!
This sounds like a perfect group project, too.
If they redact it, we implement the plan!
I can have a LOT of Babylon Bee fun, filling those blanks!
That is a BRILLIANT PLAN.
Can’t hurt to try!
“That document in the wrong person’s hands would be astronomically dangerous,” she said.
She can’t HANDLE the truth.
Fully redacted and reduced in scope, of course.
WE will fill in the redactions, and it will be AWESOME.
This should be shocking, but it’s not. NPR chick lies with a straight face.
I almost can’t even see the thing on the right, it’s as if I have no control over my eyes 😂
Beware of having your eyes “drawn to the left”! 😉
Too late. Fixated, AND it IS Nice.
If it wasn’t obvious that these jabs don’t work, it should be after having seen this. Much like the maximum possible sound pressure level is 194 dB, the required strength of beer googles to make the «after» even bearable to look at, never mind good-looking, exceeds the possible maximum value.
Even beer googles won’t help with that….
Unless they’re Bud Light beer goggles.
NSFW is usually used to label something I would actually WANT to see (even if I shouldn’t). Fortunately I read the comments before I looked.
“Even beer googles won’t help with that….
Unless they’re Bud Light beer goggles.”
Not even death goggles could make that look right 😂
Not sure if true, but in case it is, here is the warning…..
However – both Carlson and O’Keefe are not inactivated – O’Keefe just exposed Democrat donor/donation games. No telling what Carlson will do – but Gaetz seems to be excited about it and may have hinted the two will work together.
Yup. They try to stop us, but they only elevate us!

Larry’s latest: is a guest column:
THE RETURN OF DONALD TRUMP – GOOD FOR POLAND TOO
28 April 2023 by Mike Krupa 37 Comments
[NOTE FROM LARRY JOHNSON — I am not the author of this piece. It is the work of Michal Krupa, a Canadian citizen of Polish heritage who lives in Poland. I have had the privilege of appearing on Mike’s podcast.]
but also all that is good and true in Western Civilization – our common home.””If his March 16th statement is anything to go by, Donald Trump has, for one, come out guns blazing at the Globalist American Empire like never before, and, two, he has highlighted important issues that are completely at odds with the current Western, Ukraine-centric narrative of “wanting to see Russia weakened”, to which many so-called conservatives have signed up to. Remember that mini gun scene from Terminator 2? Well, in terms of political rhetoric, Trump’s statement was the sure equivalent.
As I have only now read the entire transcript of the statement, it has only now dawned on me how radical Trump’s message was.
He opens his statement with the following observation: “We have never been closer to World War III than we are today under Joe Biden. A global conflict between nuclear-armed powers would mean death and destruction on a scale unmatched in human history.”
Trump indicates that only new leadership can change this destructive course of action.
It would not be a stretch to point out that the same animating spirit that pushed President Kennedy to sue for peace in October 1962 is animating the current sentiments expressed by Trump. If one considers how the cabal of warmongers surrounding JFK were all in for a showdown in the Caribbean and connects this with the observations that followed Trump’s statement, one could say its “deja-vu all over again.” Trump calls for nothing less than a complete overhaul of the “State Department, the defense bureaucracy, the intelligence services” to “fire the Deep Staters and put America First.” If this does not sound like an expanded version of splintering the CIA “into a thousand pieces” and scattering it in the wind, as JFK was reported as saying after the Bay of Pigs debacle, I don’t know what does. Trump is tapping into a tradition of foreign policy realism and restraint that stretches from George F. Kennan, through Senator Robert F. Taft, Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, the populists Pat Buchanan, Ross Perot, Ralph Nader, the great Ron Paul, and taking it to the next level – clearly identifying the culprits and calling for their expulsion from the realm of decision making.
Talk about being unleashed.
But the essence, the “meat”, if you will, of Trump’s March 16 statement, what makes it truly radical, are the following words: “Our foreign policy establishment keeps trying to pull the world into conflict with a nuclear-armed Russia based on the lie that Russia represents our greatest threat. But the greatest threat to Western Civilization today is not Russia. It’s probably, more than anything else, ourselves and some of the horrible, U.S.A. hating people that represent us.”
You may ask, Dear Reader, what does all this have to do with Poland? If Trump really believes what he outlined in this segment of his short address and wants to align the debate in the terms set above, he would be doing my native Poland a big favor. Not to dwell too much on the history of Polish-American relations after 1989, I would humbly submit the reader reach for John Pomfret’s excellent book From Warsaw with Love. Polish Spies, the CIA, and the Forging of an Unlikely Alliance. It’s enough to say that in his review of the book, The Washington Post’s Joseph Kanon summarized the history of the literal CIA takeover and subordination of the Polish intelligence agencies as follows: “Pomfret’s apt title is only half a joke. The Poles were prepared to do almost anything to cement the relationship.”
The word anything is the one which needs to be stressed in that observation.
Ever since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, to quote Dr. Gordon Hahn, Poland has been acting as “chief-arsonist in the region”. If the neocons have wet dreams of what a perfect policy aimed at Russia would look like, Poland, sadly, is exhibit A.
Our essentially open-border policy of flooding Poland with anyone from Ukraine since February 2022 has hit Poland with a human wave unseen in our history. As was pointed out in a policy paper last year: “With the scale of the Ukrainian presence as large as it is now, Poland is in danger of becoming a country of fractured identity and constant factional fighting along ethnic and cultural dividing lines, as is happening both in countries where historical minorities are numerous, and in countries of mass immigration adopting the model of multiculturalism.” The daily Rzeczpospolita, in a report from March 13 on criminality among immigrants residing in Poland, noted: “Last year, 12,437 foreigners (more than half were Ukrainian citizens) heard charges. In less than a month this year (through January 23) there have already been 1,648, indicating a growing trend.
Statistically, per day last year, charges were announced against 34 newcomers, this year it is already 71.” The report goes on to observe that drug offenses have seen the biggest doubling – from 993 in 2020 to 2100 last year. Their possession is the second (after driving while intoxicated) of the most common offenses committed by Ukrainians – half of all such acts involve them. This is obviously only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to other associated problems stemming from massive movement of peoples, spurred by the Western provoked the war in Ukraine. The fact that the hashtag #StopUkrainizationOfPoland was trending just w few months back is not a coincidence. When commercials on television are being run with Ukrainian subtitles, when the labor market is being flooded with cheap labor and Ukrainian/Russian is becoming the second unofficial language, heard literally everywhere, and the spokesperson of the Polish Foreign Ministry proudly claims that Polish state institutions are “servants of the Ukrainian people and their requests”, you know something is wrong.
Amid this unprecedented wave of foreigners flowing into what until recently was a tightly homogenous ethnically Poland, depletion of our military equipment, Russian nuclear weapons being currently stored in Belarus, soaring inflation, the elites in Warsaw, backed by the likes of Jake Sullivan, Anthony Blinken, Victoria Nuland and no doubt a whole slew of intelligence Deep State operatives – the same ones targeting Trump – are living out their dream of trying to stick it to Putin. But, as Trump has pointed out correctly, the enemy is within – in Washington, in Brussels, in Warsaw – not in Moscow.
The same entities and people, who have set a political target (hopefully only political!) on Donald Trump’s back, are the same ones manipulating the masses here and in the United States that Russia is the enemy of us all. Should Donald Trump win a second term he would take much of the wind out of the sails of the Eastern European coterie, that acts as the perfect excuse for the Deep State in Washington and military-industrial complex to justify their malign activities by saying to average Americans: see, they themselves feel threatened, we need to help them.
The Polish Government has no respect for the American taxpayer. There is no reason that men from Kansas should be risking their lives to bring about the fantasy of resurrecting a geopolitical entity from 700 years ago, this time aimed squarely at nuclear armed Russia, taking its cue from the cabal of warmongers on the Potomac.
No. As a Pole, I do not consider Russia my enemy.
American troops should not be stationed in Poland acting as outposts for neocon fantasies.
I do not consider the current corrupt regime in Kiev to be my friend.
Rainbow flags flying alongside Ukrainian flags over Poland anger me much more than Russian flags flying over Crimea or the Donbass.
We need to turn our political guns and righteous anger on the enemy within – the globalists and their willing accomplices, the advocates of our civilization’s apocalypse, especially the ones who remain conservative and patriotic in name only.
Donald Trump must be the striking hammer that decimates this godless agenda.
For the sake of peace and sanity, he must continue to hammer away at this message of hardheaded realism and peace, as well as lead by example in selecting a shadow cabinet of people dedicated to crushing any prospect of World War III. In doing so he not only champions an America First agenda, but also all that is good and true in Western Civilization – our common home.
comments at Larry’s blog follow … they are from people across the planet… interesting, imo …
And from Gretchen who??? Oh yeah Carlson. From left field her self absorbed perspective.
Latest word is … Tucker has NOT been ‘fired’ … Faux is attempting to keep his voice silent ’til the end of his contract … Dec 2024 (AFTER the election)
Hence hiring a high end attorney who wins related cases.
FOX is not allowed to damage Tucker’s independent brand, which they are by doing what they are doing. He’s contracted, not owned. They have to fulfill the basic premise of the contract – airing his independently produced show. They will have to admit to attempting to control the show’s content as well as censorship if it goes to court.
The desperation and implosion of the fake news media is fascinating to watch.

Gretchen Carlson sued the network over sexual harassment. She’s been gone from there for a while, and she’s not the only one. Melissa Francis, also.
Melissa was one of my favorites on FBN back then. Her only weakness was being a fangirl for Elon Musk. I gave up FN a decade ago. Had switched to FBN before swearing off TV news of all types several years ago. Could see where FOX/Murdoch was headed as totally controlled op for a long time.
Cutie, is all I recall of Melissa.
Guess I should have listened, as I watched.
Gretchen thinks Trump was defeated in 2020, so I don’t trust whatever else she says.

“Update (2210ET): As the weekend begins, the WSJ reports late on Friday that big banks including JPMorgan and PNC are set to buy First Republic Bank but not in a private, market-arranged deal but rather in a transaction that would follow a government seizure of the troubled lender. A seizure and sale of First Republic, which would wipe out the equity of FRC and potentially impose losses on creditors, could come as soon as this weekend, the WSJ sources said.
And so JPM, which is already the largest US bank is about to get even bigger, by scooping up all the good FRC assets while leaving US taxpayer holdings on to the toxic ones.”
The rich are doing their usual … picking up crashed assets for pennies on the $, leaving the mess for taxpayers to absorb … y’all angry yet?

BE MY VOICE
PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD
Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.
I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.
Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.
With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.
Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.
Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.
PLEASE PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER

6:59AM – Apr 28, 2023
This is a short video from a presentation by Prof. Murakami of Tokyo University of Sciences. Prof. Murakami is speaking about the Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA-based COVID-19 “vaccines.” The video clip is in Japanese, with English translation subtitles.
From my notes on the video clip (items in quotation marks are from Prof. Murakami):
“Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has a vector sequence that is often present in Escherichia coli.”
*** The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA-based “vaccine” has part of the SV40 sequence promoter that enhances gene expression.
“…the sequence is also present in a well-known carcinogenic virus.”
“This sequence is totally unnecessary for producing the mRNA vaccine.”
“If a sequence like this is present in the DNA, the DNA is easily migrated to the nucleus.”
“So it means that the DNA can easily enter the genome.”
“This fact has already been documented…in a number of scientific literature.”
“The sequences have to be removed. However, Pfizer produced the vaccine without removing the sequences.”
“This is outrageously malicious.”
“Why such a promoter sequence is present in the DNA?”
“In fact, SV40 is a promoter of cancer viruses.”
Yours Truly found the following papers, going back to 1987, regarding the SV40 promoter sequence:
“72-bp element contains a critical control region for SV40 late expression in Xenopus laevis oocytes”
G. Khoury, et al.
(Abstract only is available to be read; the entire paper must either be purchased or accessed via an institution.)
“Sequence Requirements for Plasmid Nuclear Import”
D.A. Dean, et al.
(Abstract only is available to be read, as the paper cited above.)
“The role of plasmid constructs containing the SV40 DNA nuclear-targeting sequence in cationic lipid-mediated DNA delivery”
T.K. Prasad and N.M. Rao
(The entire paper is found here:
One: Is the SV40 promoter sequence in any way connected with the PRRARSV “backdoor key” code that was inserted into the genome of the original Wuhan Hu1 virus (and therefore would be in the mRNA-based and viral vector-based COVID-19 “vaccines” like the Pfizer-BioNTech, the Moderna, and Novavax, and others)?
Two: Is the SV40 promoter sequence the “instigator” behind the catastrophic rise in cancers of all kinds (new cases, prior cases in remission that “suddenly” roar back, or the “turbo-cancers” that are popping up? [and are being diagnosed by doctors like Dr. Ryan Cole]
Three: If is it true that any trace of SV40 must be removed prior to the final production of a vaccine, WHY did Pfizer-BioNTech leave it in for their COVID-19 “vaccines?”
Four: Is SV40 present in any way in any of the lipid nanoparticles (especially the two that were developed for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccine?”
Five: Did the CDC / FDA know about, or should they have known about, the presence of both the PRRARSV inserted code AND the presence of SV40 in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccine”, BNT162b2, prior to granting the company the initial EUA in December, 2020, for this “vaccine” to be used in the United States?
This is a COMPLETELY different thing, but it may be RELATED.
SV40 is a monkey virus. PfizerWorld and VaccineWorld are now fully lying about the virus in all ways necessary, to evade responsibility for having infected humanity with this thing.
See, for example, this post on the virus by the Child Gender Mutilation Hospital CHOP (yes, that’s right):
The lies and cover-ups actually get WORSE:
They keep “fucking up”. Maybe it’s ON PURPOSE in order to CHANGE HUMANITY.
That’s my theory.
So, if there’s SV40, a simian virus, in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccine”, and elements of Escherichia coli in the Moderna COVID-19 “vaccine”, how many more types of viruses and other things are going to be found to be in these “vaccines?”
Who at Moderna and at Pfizer-BioNTech said it was OK to put these things into their COVID-19 “vaccines?”
Who at the CDC / FDA knew, or should have known, about these things in these “vaccines?”
What other things are being put into the “new” mRNA-based “vaccines” that are now in development and/or “clinical trials” for RSV, for cancer, and for other conditions?
I think there is an EXTREMELY strong case against all these vaccines based on their being defective and adulterated, and if we had a functional FDA, they would tear these vaccine companies to ribbons.
Just found THIS:
“Emergent Human Pathogen Simian Virus 40 and Its Role in Cancer”
R.A. Vilchez and J.S. Butel
From the Abstract:
“The polyomavirus simian virus 40 (SV40) is a known oncogenic DNA virus which induces primary brain and bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and lymphomas in laboratory animals…A meta-analysis of molecular, pathological, and clinical data from 1,793 cancer patients indicates that there is a significant risk of SV40 associated with human primary brain cancers, primary bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.” (bolding and Italics mine)
So it appears that this SV40 isn’t just a “head cold” that it induces in monkeys. WHO AT PFIZER-BIONTECH GAVE THE OK FOR THIS TO BE INCLUDED IN THE COMPANY’S COVID-19 “VACCINES?” Because if SV40 is the company’s “flagship” COVID-19 “vaccine”, BNT162b2, AND this “vaccine” is included in the formulation of the company’s “Bivalent COVID-19 vaccine”, the potential for this SV40 to do its dirty work is ALSO in the “Bivalent COVID-19 vaccine.”
About the FDA — the agency is “functional” in that it follows federal government / bureaucrat rules, in addition to making up its own. IMO, the issue with the FDA (and the CDC) is that THEY ARE SHADOW-OWNED BY BIG PHARMA AND THE AMA.
To share a Tweet via SMS or email
How to share a tweet (works the same in wordpress comments/replies):
Looking at a tweet, at the bottom right hand side, is a “SHARE” icon*.
Hovering over it will highlight “SHARE”; clicking on it will give a pop-up menu with three options.
Click the icon located within the Tweet.
From the pop-up menu, select Copy link to Tweet.
The URL will be copied to your clipboard.
Once you have opened your email client, you can paste the URL into the email you compose.
The “SHARE” Icon looks like THIS:
Thank you so much!
Copy and paste! You can also right-click on the date or time in a tweet and copy a link to the tweet.
When you paste the URL of the tweet, I generally recommend removing everything after the question mark, including the question mark.
Thank you so much!
You’re VERY WELCOME !
PS: You can do a “SEARCH” for just about ANYTHING and get articles, pics, vids, etc. Just type in “How to (then the topic-in this case, “How to share a Tweet”)”.
I do fewer steps for a tweet. Right click the date & time on the tweet & choose “copy link address” & paste that where you want it & usually the whole tweet shows. If there is a video in the tweet then right click over the video & choose “copy video address” (might be the only choice) & then paste it here (or wherever) & the video should also play here without having to go into twitter, fyi.

Leftist Messaging and Polio Vaccine fearmongering
Call it “meta-messaging” – talking about how to frame the next polio vax push
Senior Science + Technology Editor
I grew up with a relative who had been paralyzed by polio, the viral disease that’s been preventable by vaccine since the 1950s. But not that many people in the U.S. today have that kind of constant reminder of the bad things vaccines can protect you from. Media studies scholar Katherine Foss writes that’s part of the reason vaccination campaigns may need to rethink their messaging.
“Phrasing that aims to encourage immunizations by highlighting their accomplishments implies that some diseases are no longer a threat,” Foss writes.
The triumphant tone of memes like “Got Polio? Me neither. Thanks, Science!” run the risk of making it seem like that once-feared scourge and other vaccine-preventable diseases are relegated to the history books. But the reality is they can come roaring back if vaccination numbers slip.
‘Got polio?’ messaging underscores a vaccine campaign’s success but creates false sense of security as memories of the disease fade in US
Published: April 27, 2023 8.31am EDT
Messages like this are used in memes, posters, T-shirts and even some billboards to promote routine vaccinations. As this catchy statement reminds people of once-feared diseases of the past, it – perhaps unintentionally – conveys the message that polio has been relegated to the history books.
Phrasing that aims to encourage immunizations by highlighting their accomplishments implies that some diseases are no longer a threat.
Few people today know much about polio. In 2022, only one-third of surveyed adults in the U.S. were aware that polio has no cure. Moreover, a 2020 poll had found that 84% of adults viewed vaccinating children as important, a 10% decline from 2001. The COVID-19 pandemic amplified anti-vaccination messaging, while also delaying routine immunization.
Vaccine-preventable diseases are far from eradicated. Measles outbreaks in unvaccinated or under-vaccinated American communities have begun resurfacing in the past few years, despite a 2000 declaration that the virus had been eliminated in the U.S. Pertussis cases have been on the rise, with more than 18,000 cases reported in 2019. And in July 2022, polio reappeared in an unvaccinated New York man – the first U.S. diagnosis since 1979. This case helped return attention to polio, causing at least some young adults to wonder about their own vaccination status.
A shift in focus to immunization in developing countries has further lulled Americans into a false sense of security. While global approaches have been effective and are certainly needed, as the author of “Constructing the Outbreak: Epidemics in Media and Collective Memory,” I suggest that the celebratory messaging is no longer as effective as it once was and runs the risk of making it seem as if polio only lives in history books.
. . . MORE . . .
How many illegal immigrants are vaccinated against polio?
Gosh, what could cause that re-emergence?
Could it be the invasion by a bunch of 3rd worlders?
Nah … I’m sure it’s the fault of the non-vaxxed.
One of the many things she fails to mention is that pertussis is on the rise because of a stupid decision to go to an inferior vaccine. I don’t remember the details, but it was one more avoidable, human-caused medical disaster, IIRC.

Nothing like today…which is more egregious.
It’s like laughing at the world’s most spectacular faceplant by comparing it to watching the guy stub his toe last week.
I think that the public mind control now is significantly greater – and that is responsible for the degree of the egregious that we see now.
People accept things that violate all sorts of common sense as a STARTING POINT. From that framework, lying, covering up opposing facts, and propagandizing against one’s own knowledge becomes routine. Bruce Y. Lee comes to mind.
An ILLEGAL w a gun who has fled the country.
“Texas man massacres FIVE neighbors including an eight-year-old boy after they asked him to stop shooting his gun at 11.30pm because they were trying to get a baby to sleep”
“A Mexican man living in Texas is on the run after killing five of his neighbors, including an eight-year-old boy, because they asked him to stop practice firing his gun in his yard.
Francisco Oropeza, 38, is accused of opening fire on his neighbors at 11.30pm last night in Cleveland, a city north of Houston.
The neighbors – a family of ten all living together – has asked him to stop firing his weapon because they were trying to get a baby to sleep.
Oropeza, who was known to fire his gun in his yard often, replied ‘I’ll do what I want in my front yard’ and shot five members of the family with an AR-15 before fleeing. ”
Gotta call the cops in these circumstances.
OH – they were illegal, too. COUGH.
